Aerenal Elves

Their names have few differences between male and female forms, and both generally have more vowel sounds than consonants.

Sample names: Aeren, Allais, Dailan, Kylaear, Maellas, Thalaen, and Vylae.


Valenar Elves

Use the same naming patterns as Aerenal elves, with little to differentiate male and female names.

Usual names: Aeraes, Dailian, Fianin, Kaelan, Lia, Niath, Shearan, Tairil, Thail, Vaelas, Vaelin, Xael


Khorvaire Elves

The elves of the Five Nations retain some of the naming traditions of the Aerenal, including the use of many vowels. Their time away from the lands of their ancestors, however, has led to changes that are reflected even in their language.


Although Aereni and Valenar elves prefer names that are lilting and mellifluous, the time that Khorvaire elves have spent among the othr races has led to shorter, more truncated names. While there is still som overlap between male and female names, distinct gender naming conventions have developed.

Male: Aesha, Daellin, Marrath, Tellian
Female: Innae, Paela, Phaeani, Sailla, X'ennia.
